There's a lot of news happening this month, so let's jump right in!
1) Support your local independent pet business. Here's why...
2) In case you have not watched this recent documentary about the pet food industry, you may consider putting it on your list. Although Pet Fooled just scratches the surface of the processed food conundrum consumer's face, it is definitely worth a watch. I am a little disappointed that it completely skips the major players that have been fighting for healthier pet food standards since 1979 and jumps to an overview featuring our current YouTube darlings championing the cause. For example, did you know that Dr. Wysong of Wysong pet foods is involved in a legal battle against the big pet food companies for false advertising? Also, it offers a very simplistic approach to product safety, like reading the list of ingredients. With that said, Pet Fooled is a good place for pet parents to learn the basics about the pet food industry. What I really DO like about the film is how they cover so much of the key points of a battle that has been going on since consumers first started becoming aware of the problems in the pet food industry in 2007. And, thumbs up to Dr. Karen Becker. Finally, here's a knowledgeable veterinarian stepping forward and busting the Prescription Diet myth that has had pet parents by the wallet for a very long time. Highly Recommend! Please, watch and share it with your friends:
